Shock Wave Therapy


Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical therapy using acoustic sound waves. These high energy sound waves promote the bodies natural healing processes such as stimulating collagen production, promoting blood flow/vessel growth, inflammation and cellular regeneration. It can be used in bone, tendon and soft tissue injury types.

What is Shockwave used for?
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Posterior tibial tendon tendinopathy
  • Patella/Hamstring/gluteal tendinopathy
  • Calf muscle stiffness
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Myofascial trigger points
  • Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen shoulder)
  • Chronic tennis/golfer’s elbow
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Pulse vibration massage
What can you expect?

We usually recommend a weekly treatment that can last up to 4 to 6 sessions to have maximum effect. Studies have shown that most clients will experience 85% improvement after three treatments. Of course, conditions that have been affecting you for a long time may take longer to treat.

We sit you comfortably and soft gel will be applied to the area being treated. A loud tapping sound will be heard as the shockwaves are generated, and you may feel some initial tingling before the pain-relieving effects take over.

How can it help?
  • Influence tissues on a cellular level to promote inflammation which enhances and reset the healing pattern
  • Desensitise tissue: Shock Wave therapy can reduce sensitive areas around the body via gate control therapy to calm symptoms down
  • Shock Wave is a non-invasive therapy with no radiation
  • Re-vascularisation (the development of new blood vessels) occurs in the region of treatment to allow for more oxygen and nutrients for healing and regeneration
  • Muscle tone recovery to assist with stiffness in soft tissue.
Can this be claimed on my insurance?
